From November 5-8 we held our 4th annual KNIME Fall Summit in Austin, TX. We welcomed over 250 people through the doors this year - a mix of KNIME users and enthusiasts, as well as data experts from a variety of industries.
Here are all the highlights:
Plus a few nice impressions:
This was our biggest summit in the US so far and, as always, was packed with data science in action. No worries if you missed it: you can look up some of the talks, come to Berlin in spring next year, or join us next year in Austin (date to be confirmed very soon!)
Michael Berthold, KNIME CEO, opened the Summit by showing how to automate and guide selected parts of the data science life cycle. Dean Abott, SmarterHQ Founder and Chief Data Scientist, closed with his keynote presentation on how to enable your models to speak the language of business. We were overwhelmed by the impressive presentations from our users, which covered a diverse range of use cases across different industries. Here are a select few:
- Using KNIME to Build a Data-Driven Culture (and Workflows!) in a Biopharma Setting
- Visualizing with Guided Analytics: For End Users AND Experts
- Virtual Anticipation Network: Applying Tensor Completion to the Study of Inter-State Competition and Irregular Conflict
On Tuesday and Wednesday we ran our KNIME courses - including the new Time Series Analysis course, which was a big hit (we even had to pull in some extra seats!) We ran the KNIME Refresher Course for the first time in Austin, and our Partner, Elder Research, ran a course on machine learning with KNIME. At the summit, attendees were also able to sign up and do the KNIME certification.
It was great hosting everyone in Austin and we are looking forward to our upcoming KNIME Spring Summit from March 30 to April 3 2020 in Berlin. Secure your spot now with an early bird ticket.
